Kenworth offering standard track options for Paccar front axle

Updated Mar 19, 2018

Kenworth announced Friday it is offering new standard track options for the 20,000-pound and 22,800-pound Paccar front axle lineup, available for order with Kenworth Class 8 vocational models.

Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director, says the Paccar front axle with standard track is an important addition for the vocational market because “it provides the best axle/wheel/tire combination to achieve a 20,000-pound rating with 425-series tires, while also offering excellent wheel-cut and maneuverability.”

The Paccar front axle uses a tapered kingpin roller bearing, simplifying design and delivering enhanced steering efficiency. The Paccar front axle offers steering angles up to 50 degrees and has a five-year / 750,000 mile warranty.
